1995 gmc suburban leaking power steering fluid at end of I think is steering column that hooks to something else but there is rubber seal like that is breaking apart that connects the 2 parts together? I...

Sounds like the pitman arm. See #5 on diagram below. It has a ball joint with grease that is held in with a boot. It the boot is cracked open, you should replace the arm. You will need an alignment after replacing the arm. The arm does not contain any steering fluid, so if that is leaking, you have another seal broken somewhere...

That's a strange place for oil to be leaking. I would be concerned that it's brake fluid. If you lose any break fluid, you won't have any brakes. I'd get it checked out asap.

Just asked how ti fix my issues with the brake problems I am having

When you say leaking off, I assume the pedal is soft or goes to the floor when depressed. Since all of the major brake system components have been changed, the brake lines are the next suspect. DO you notice any loss of brake fluid from the reservoir? Do you see any fluid leak on the ground or at the wheels?

1994 gmc back left tire break leak

Most likely rellted to the rear wheel cylinder. You need to remove the tire, probably replace the brake shoes if they are wet with fluid, wipe down brake drum with carb or brake cleaner, install new wheel cylinder and put everything else back together. Wheel cylinder is available through most auto parts outlets. Probaby less than $15.

mcdevito75 here, True a bad Master cylinder but you can"t rule out a major leak, look carefully for brake fluid leak, also chek fluid in master cylinder if low, fluid going someplace, have the shop check it out.

Have a leake in a peace that is going on the back of the wagon that is look like something that is have to be with the break system. the break lines come from the front to this part and then go to the rear...

sounds like you are describing the proportional valve. if you have never worked with this take it to a shop and have them inspect, a brake fluid leak is potentially a major issue.

95 Jeep Cherokee - Leaking Back Brake Cylinder

try and get him down to 350 in this recession it is a buyers market, for a 95 you never know what could come up.
if any of the breaks are leaking there is a potential hazzard and I would say it is not safe to drive. it is not as bad as a master cylinder fail but should be fixed right away, if the fluid leaks out it can cause damage itself and if you run low the brakes will fail or will bind up if the fluid leaks on to the friction area that will cause break fade until it burns away..
while your at it check if the brake disk edge is a got thicker than the middle as you may need to replace the discs also. and if that needs doing you need to put in new break pads so everyting wears equally.
if it is a rubber seal that is leaking then the seals may be perishing on all the other breaks also so that will cost. shop around and see if you can find a better bargain or maybe ask your local garage how much a complete break service would cost. then weigh up if the car is worth it.

Transmission fluid leaking

Bars leak is ok, but if it is a seal, you'll need to drop the tranny pan and replace it. I don't know about Mercedes, but usually you have to remove the exaust pipes to take the pan off.
